Bringing the Food Economy Home: Local Alternatives to Global Agribusinessby Helena Norberg-Hodge, Todd Merrifield, Steven Gorelick
Pub. Date: 06/28/2002
Publisher: Kumarian Press, Inc.
Norberg-Hodge, Todd Merrifield, and Steven Gorelick of the International Society for Ecology and Culture discuss how a shift towards local food economies would protect and rebuild the agricultural diversity that has been lost in the current specialized, capital intensive, technology-based global environment. Coverage includes the history of this change in emphasis from local to global; the ecology of food marketing and production; food and health, the economy, and the community; food security; and changing direction.
